We're just so thrilled and thankful to be part of this project!
 
The students at +HASA | The Hearing and Speech Agency are learning their ABCs and how to count, just like other preschoolers. But because they were born deaf or hard of hearing, they’re learning to listen and to talk for the very first time too. This can be tough for their parents, who have to leave their kids at school for the first time. As one parent observed, “it's always a mystery once we drop them off.”

Erin Medley is one teacher who is finding a solution. She’s using Glass to take photos and videos of her students and share them with their parents. - “We know so much good happens but there is nothing like seeing to believe.”

Good day! everyone.. I have a son 18 yrs. of age.. He has congenital hearing loss. Since birth he can't hear and speak. But we don't have enough money to buy hearing aid implant. Is there anybody who can help us? But above all I'm not loosing my faith in God that 1 day somebody help my son. Hoping to those people who have a good heart read my post. Being a single mom in lower class of life style so hard to raise my 2 boys. But above all hoping someday my son  hear the sounds created by God. So help me God to find sponsor for my boy.
